Sibling Autoblog Green has posted about NuRide, a decidedly different type of carpool system. With NuRide, patrons are matched with other riders/drivers with similar start and destinations during the date/time. The system has an eBay-esque type rating system, so participants can avoid the rider/driver whose musical/cologne/hygene habits aren't mutual. Finally, NuRiders earn points every time they share a ride, with credits being redeemable at places like Target, Wine.com, Brookstone, and other vendors.
